I've written about 9/11 before on this blog --
my entry called Blood Red Pants documents my own personal memory
of that day.
I don't really want to say too much about it,
yet I want to acknowledge the anniversary.
Because, quite frankly,
we can't forget history --
history is our story
and the story
of the last ten years has been the history
we have written in the wake
of that horrible day --
We do have the power to change this story
if we guide the pen
with no ego,
with no evil,
with a full understanding that history
can and will repeat itself
if we let it.
The best tribute I've heard to 9/11 is Judy Collins' Kingdom Come --
I've posted it before.
I'll do it again.
Thank you Judy,
and may the souls of those who died on 9/11/01
and those who have died
in the decade since,
sacrificed for the sake of 9/11,
